Billy & Paj (and Kris & Loretta) were invited by ?estLove (whom we first met at age 5) to be backstage guests at the Philly 4th of July concert to renew old Lee Andrews & The Hearts acquaintances (Donn, Jaqui, and Karen & family) and to spend time with recent and new friends on the job. It was so good to see everybody and to see that they were all healthy, happy, and doing fine. The weather was fine and it was a great day of music and camaraderie. Thanks to everyone! We are truly blessed!


 We shot a lot of pictures, which you can view here.

(To 4-Play Band):
We at Komen send our heartfelt appreciation for the support and generosity of the donation. We Thank you sincerely for choosing Komen Philadelphia for your fundraiser and hope we can partner for next year’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
That donation will help pay for free screening and mammograms and treatment  for uninsured and underinsured women who I know are thankful to your Band as well.
Through those screenings many lives have been saved and know that the 4-PLAY BAND has helped us to continue our mission in serving woman throughout the Tri-State area.

Best regards,

This year (2014), 4-Play Band wants to at least quadruple our contribution so, please, help us support a noble and necessary cause by either donating directly to the Susan G. Komen Foundation or by purchasing a Pink&Black 4-Play t-shirt from us (all of the profits go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation).
